In February of 2010, Philanthropiece partner, LHI, opened up Chajul’s first public library. Saber Sin Límites, (Limitless Knowledge) has proven to be a huge success and a great resource for the community of Chajul. The photo above is from the very first Story Hour, held in July 2010. Story Hour has proven to be a very popular activity for Chajulense children of all ages. Children come to listen and discuss stories and participate in an arts and crafts activity. Monsters and dinosaurs are the most popular themes! The Chajul Library and Story Hour in particular are allowing the youth of Chajul to experience the wonderful world of books in ways they never could have imagined.
